A Hazmat team responded and evacuated the campaign’s offices. They also sent employees to the roof of the nine-story building according to Rubio’s aide.

Late Tuesday fire crews wrapped up their investigation and the staffers were allowed to return to the office.

Earlier this month Hazmat and local authorities were called to Ted Cruz’s campaign headquarters in Houston after their office received a similar letter that contained a white substance. Authorities said the substance was not toxic.

The Cruz campaign released a statement in the immediate aftermath:

“Today, a staff member in our Houston office opened a letter that contained a white substance. The office followed standard protocol, immediately notifying local authorities. The FBI, their HazMat team, and City of Houston Fire Department came to the scene and tested the substance. It was found to be non-toxic, and has been taken away by the FBI for further testing.”
